An abstract is required. The study involved college students, a target population of 208 in number. The research study was conducted in different phases in which three General Psychology classes run through the study to come up with a detailed study. The 208 students had different traits. From this target population, a sample study of 40 students was selected using a random sampling technique. The students had different ages that were ranging from 18 years to 25 years, but the specifics on ages and ages were not revealed to the researchers. The students with thin and thick boundaries were put understudy for two hours to determine the goal and objective of the study, which had to answer the research question (Hall, 1983).
The researchers used quasi-experimental design in the study and had two hypotheses for the study: “1) the college students dreams would differ from their daydreams in that they would have more CIs and more intense CIs. We also expected that the contextualized emotions in dreams would include more fear/terror and helplessness/ vulnerability than in daydreams” (Grace et al., 2001, p. 98). The second hypothesis stated and tested by the researchers in the article is that the “students who score relatively “thin” on the Boundary Questionnaire would have more CIs and more intense CIs than those who score “thick”-in both dreams and daydreams” (Grace et al., 2001, p. 98). The study had one independent variable being tested against one independent variable. The independent variable on the topic under study was the possible images experienced by college students on different experiences, in relation to their dreams according to their personality traits while the dependent variable, which is the availability of dreams in different occasion such as trauma in different personalities. .
